Event Details

The catholics are one of Australia's most distinctive contemporary groups and we always love having them at 505.

Their leader, composer and bassist, Lloyd Swanton, is well known across Australia and internationally for his work with improvising legends The Necks, as well as appearances on over 90 albums.

Throughout there beautifully crafted and instantly accessible pieces runs a strong, seductive dance strain found in the band's various African, Caribbean, Latin and Eastern influences. By taking the catchiness of pop music, and combining it with infectious dance rhythms of the world and indisputably authoritative jazz blowing, The catholics are creating a rare thing indeed- a sound with an instant appeal, physical excitement, passion, and critical credibility.

This year the catholics released their eight album Yonder to strong critical acclaim. SMH.com described it as "a near-perfect jazz album" and Rhythms Magazine called it "arguably the pick of their catalogue"

Sandy Evans - saxophones, James Greening - trombone and pocket trumpet, Jonathan Pease - guitar, Gary Daley - piano accordion, Hamish Stuart - drums, and Fabian Hevia - percussion.
